Fayetteville Attorneys Offer Diligent Defense for Traffic Violations

Experienced advocacy to protect your North Carolina driving record

Most people think of speeding tickets and other traffic citations as an unfortunate nuisance — not even worth fighting. If, however, you have had tickets before, or you are cited for a particularly severe offense, your license could be in jeopardy. At Devan & Null PLLC, we understand traffic citations and the suspension/revocation and reinstatement process. We understand the impact that losing your license can have on your life and provide a level of defense representation that takes the gravity of the situation into account.

North Carolina License Suspension and Reinstatement

There are several ways to get your license suspended in North Carolina. Driving while intoxicated, or DWI, will typically result in at least a year’s suspension, for a first offense. Even an accumulation of relatively minor offenses can result in a license suspension.

Most traffic violations are assigned a point value. If a driver accumulates 12 or more points in a three-year period, his or her license may be suspended for up to 60 days. These common violations are assessed as follows:

  • Passing a stopped school bus — 5 points
  • Aggressive driving — 5 points
  • Following too closely — 5 points
  • Reckless driving — 4 points
  • Failing to yield to a pedestrian — 4 points
  • Running through a stop sign or red light — 3 points
  • Failing to properly restrain a child with a seat belt — 2 points

In addition, some speeding offenses, such as exceeding the speed limit by more than 15 mph in a 55-mph or higher zone can result in an immediate suspension together with points. North Carolina drivers with seven or more points may have three deducted by attending a driver improvement clinic; however, this can be done only once every five years.

Once your license is suspended, you must wait for the suspension period to run before applying for reinstatement and paying a reinstatement fee. A license cannot be suspended so long as the conviction that led to the suspension remains under appeal.

Our lawyers understand that your license is your livelihood and that keeping it is crucial. We look at the unique facts of your case and help you achieve the best outcome possible after receiving a traffic ticket.
